4.0 out of 5 stars The Wicked Witch of the (Old) West, 30 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Witchfinder Volume 2: Lost and Gone Forever (Paperback)
Sir Edward Grey is on the trail of a Lord Glaren which leads him to the old West, Utah, where the trail ends. But the small town he winds up in has come under hard times. Their church burned down with the churchfolk inside and some say Satan himself came to take the congregation to Hell. Grey finds himself caught in a web cast by an evil witch who is bringing the dead back and manipulating the native American's mythology to suit her purpose. Witches, zombies, stone dogs, and living gods - say howdy to Witchfinder Book 2.

Mike Mignola and John Arcudi team up to script an excellent second volume from their Witchfinder series with Sir Edward Grey as the consummate hunter of witches, par excellence. They're joined by John Severin whose artwork is well suited to the dry deserts of Utah and who does a fine job of depicting the various supernatural entities Grey and his friends meet along the way. The landscapes he draws are superb and he does a fine job of re-creating the ramshackle wooden towns of this time too.

A great character in the form of Kaler is introduced in the book and serves as an invaluable aid to Grey as he finds adapting from the misty streets of London to the dusty trail of the American countryside, difficult. Kaler is an American version of Grey, though without the direction of Grey's service to the Crown and his own personal demons of his departed wife. His inclusion and development as a well-rounded character is what gives the book extra kick, especially for this reader.

"Lost and Gone Forever" is a more action packed story than the first volume but no less brilliant a book. Fans of Mignola and spooky comics will love it.
